Lovely restaurant tucked away from the main street. I had sea bass which was the best I've ever had in a restaurant and my brother had pork medallions which was also excellent. Bit of a limited dessert menu (only 3 options) but other than that I would highly recommend Marco Polo. Good selection of meat, pasta, risotto and fish all... More

Croatian fusion cuisine! Had the octopus carpaccio for appetizer. It's a must! Then had the Khubla Khan beefsteak. Tender and flavorful. Lamb chops also amazing! This restaurant has great service and a great menu.

Visited in early July. If you are looking for a place to eat in the old town you can’t go wrong with Marco Polo. It’s within a dead end side alley so it feels far more private that some of the other restaurants where tourists are walking by looking at your food. The setting is lovely, old walls and greenery...

We stopped by here after dinner elsewhere for desert and wine.. We were not disappointed.. The Panna Cotta was one of the best I have ever had.. The wine selection by the staff was perfectly matched.... Definitely worth a visit...

The food was absolutely delicious and well worth visit. Was a little surprised by the cost, after add-ons, when we only had mains and wines. Still, food was tremendous with a great selection of creation wine.

Set back in a small alley off the main square you feel away from the crowds. The food tastes fantastic. I had a cold soup of cucumber, yogurt and mint and the tuna. Waiters are friendly and accommodating and you get to choose from a selection of Croatian wines
